Program Curriculum

Leadership SOAR is structured to build strong leadership and self-esteem in youth. SOAR stands for Service Opportunity combined with Actions equals Results. This program provides leadership opportunities and motivating mentors who are committed in uniting our youth’s growth and development in becoming self sufficient individuals.

 

Leadership SOAR was designed for elementary and middle school youth who want to learn and apply leadership principles. The program Curriculum consists of:

 

SKILLS Competition

 

Student Leaders enter SKILLS Competition to display the skills they have learned throughout the year. Competition areas are Interviewing Skills, Community Service, Dining Etiquette, Prepared Speech, Customer Service, Extemporaneous Speaking, Prepared Speech, First Aid, and Parliamentary Procedures.

 

Competitors are judged based on specific guidelines given.

 

Prizes will be awarded to Gold, Silver, and Bronze level winners. In addition, winners will be awarded prizes provided by Youth Leadership Partners.
